My System Specs

Default

You guys are stressing too much, ultimately the Touch UI will just an integration into the main OS that is predominately used by tablet clients and activated rarely by PC users. From the video you can see that the flexibility to predominately operate in the traditional PC environment exists with no interference from Touch UI. Basically their goal is unity by augmenting Touch UI as an alternative or side interface without replacement of the traditional PC interface.

Just imagine it as watching movies through Windows Media Centre on Windows 7 versus launching files directly from within Windows 7. Just now the integration is more wide spread and seamless.

Default When functionality meets dis-functionality!!!

Well... The concept is great for tablets but for using this with mouse and keyboard me not want... It was hard enough moving from XP to Vista due to items moved all around the OS. We'll eventually get used to it but classical interface is best when using mouse and keyboard.

Plus, you lose sooo much screen estate with this interface.
